Tips for a Successful Interview

At Lafarge, we are committed to attracting and retaining competent and highly motivated people who love the challenge of working in an environment of continuous learning. We seek people who share our values, work as a winning team, take ownership, and strive for excellence. To be prepared for your interview, make sure to review our interview tips.

Be Yourself

Different people thrive in different environments. The interview gives us both an opportunity to make sure there is a fit in order to ensure a successful relationship. The interview will be most effective if you are relaxed, speak the truth, and be yourself.

Get to Know Us

We encourage you to become familiar with our industry, objectives, goals, and the challenges we face. A great place to start is by reviewing our Information for job Candidates section as well as the Lafarge Group website. Be able to express why you want to work for Lafarge. The more intelligent and informed you are the more impressive you'll be.

Prepare Ahead of Time

While standard questions might seem easy, it can be difficult to differentiate your responses from that of other applicants. Review your job history and take note of the things that make you stand out as a good employee. Be ready to support past career accomplishments with specific examples targeted toward Lafarge's needs. You will be asked to answer traditional, job-specific, and behavioral interview questions. Fully understand the question and think it through before answering. We'll be looking for a drive for excellence, professionalism, a "can do" attitude, high integrity, and most importantly, commitment to your own safety and the safety of your family and colleagues. Have your facts ready!

Interview Us

You're in the process of making a decision that will impact your career for years to come. Take this opportunity to ask any questions you might have about our vision, values, and the "Lafarge Way." Many interviewers provide an overview of the job, but if you still have questions at the end of the interview, ask. We're committed and more than willing to share our insight to help you make the best decision.
